September 10: Letter to the Editor

Re: Obscenity laws leave us covering our  eyes

On July 28, The Journal published an editorial that referred to an informational display in downtown Kingston by the group Show the Truth. The Journal erroneously described the group as “anti-abortion”. This term is problematic and offensive. This group and many others self-identify as “pro-life”. 

This has been the accepted term for the pro-life community for many decades. Those of us in the pro-life community would appreciate your co-operation in using more culturally sensitive language.

Colin MacDougall, associate professor of civil engineering
